Not specifically, no. But I would like to be able set a property with the
body text of an element without having to use addCallMethod().

I would like to use some form of setProperties() to map the entire XML
document to a bean. So if I have a consistent structure too my XML documents
than one digester will take care of all my needs.

Ultimately this is a tool I want to use to extend Torque to allow XML
persistence  and not just database persistence. If all the beans conform to
a certain pattern (unlikely, I know but for 80% of all cases I imagine the
pattern would work) than all I need is one digester.
